My mother passed away five years ago on April 6th, so I have been very reflective all week. I posted a tribute to her on Facebook and pulled out some of her old albums. I found some wonderful photos of my grandparents and great grandparents. What a treasure! I am posting some of my Grandma Rose, my mom's mother who I was fortunate to spend a lot of time with until her death in 1990 at the age of 89. Here is a photo of her and her friends in 1920. Look at those babes!

Below, she is at about 16 years old. Her dress is awesome and I'm enjoying the homes in the background, too.
This was at the end of the Arts & Crafts period, right before the Roaring Twenties. Her outft completely fits the era.
Here's a great photo of what looks to be a general goods store. Gram's off for some shopping, looks like to me. Dates to c1918
My grandma and grandpa were raised in Two Harbors, Minnesota. He was 12 years older than my grandma and had gone away to war. He came home to Two Harbors. She always said "he was the most eligible boy in town". They fell in love, married and traveled across country to San Diego in 1922, the year my mom was born.
Frank & Esther, my grandparents. My grandfather was an avid swimmer and canoer.
(Love the bathing suit!)
These photos are priceless.
